The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) within the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Strathclyde is seeking to appoint a teaching/academic member of staff to complement and expand the current expertise in Marine Engineering within the Department. 

NAOME is recognised nationally and internationally for its excellence in teaching and research in naval architecture, marine engineering and ocean engineering. The expertise within NAOME is reflected in both our teaching programmes at BEng, MEng and MSc level, as well as through our research and PhD programmes. We now have the opportunity to strengthen our expertise in Marine Engineering and are looking to appoint an ambitious candidate who is keen to develop their career in a vibrant and expanding Department. 

The candidate will join the teaching/academic staff to deliver undergraduate and postgraduate courses in marine engineering and will be encouraged to develop and/or expand their academic research and teaching career. Research and teaching activities within the Department are complemented and enhanced by an excellent hydrodynamic test facility and a marine engine lab. The Department also hosts the Marine Safety Research Centre; an industry-University partnership involving NAOME, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and DNV GL Classification Society. The successful candidate will be encouraged to engage fully with these initiatives and facilities to develop their teaching and research portfolio. 

Successful candidates will be educated to a minimum of PhD level. Candidates will have a proven ability to collaborate well with colleagues and with industry, understanding and meeting its needs and promoting innovation. Candidates with an academic background will have a track record of relevant publications in good academic journals; those who have spent much of their career in industry should show an ability deliver projects showing significant originality and an ability to disseminate findings in well-written, well-referenced publications. Applicants will be excellent educators and mentors and will show leadership in identifying key research questions and attracting funding support. Applicants will have sound engineering knowledge, good judgment in and experience of successfully leading a team/s, with experience of developing engineering solutions and clearly communicating research findings. 

Appointments will be made at a level appropriate to a successful candidate’s experience and career stage. 

Flexible working arrangements will be considered.
